Project Linus Donates Homemade Blankets for Impoverished Children

          Last Friday, HSP received a generous donation of new, homemade blankets from the Oak Park Chapter of Project Linus! Sharon Kurth, the Chapter Coordinator, brought in four dozen blankets for our Children’s Birthday Project. These fun and colorful blankets will reach needy children as part of the birthday boxes that HSP provides to the impoverished children enrolled in the program. Each box is filled with gifts of toys, games, books, school supplies, stuffed animals and party supplies to help the child celebrate and make the birthday memorable.
          Project Linus is an all-volunteer non-profit organization that has chapters nationwide. They collect homemade blankets to give to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need. Over the years, they have donated 2 million blankets to children all over the country.
          Each handmade blanket thoughtfully donated by Project Linus shows love and care to the impoverished children we serve. We are so appreciative of Project Linus’s kindness and generosity.
